The milk bank receives frozen breastmilk that has previously been stored in freezers.

Unfortunately, mothers are unable to donate their milk containing fenugreek.
After the pasteurization process and lab testing, donor breastmilk is sent primarily to local Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Some out-of-state hospitals also receive donor breastmilk for their NICUs.
Donors do not receive any payment for their donations.
The milk bank will gladly send insulated boxes and cover all shipping expenses for donors who wish to send their milk from out-of-state.
Donors may send any frozen breastmilk (within the acceptable age range and free of restricted medications) that may be currently stored.
Any type of storage container donors wish to send to the milk bank is acceptable. However, the milk bank can provide storage containers so that donors do not have to purchase their own.
Approved donors are allowed to donate for as long as they wish, regardless of the age of their baby.
